Local lawmaker continues to fight toll proposals

The General Assembly committees are making their way through bills to pass on to the full legislature.  Danbury State Senator Mike McLachlan says he will continue to fight proposals to install tolls in Connecticut.  He says he has heard his constituents loud and clear that they don't want this money grab targeted at residents and workers on the state's borders. 

 

He says it's no surprise that the legislators proposing tolls want to put them in someone else's backyard.  McLachlan says it's always easier to make someone else pay the bill and face the congestion on local roads from people trying to avoid tolls. 

 

He also cited a 2015 study about the impact of tolls in Connecticut submitted to the Department of Transportation in 2015 that found that there was a significant capital cost associated with deploying all-electronic tolling.
